Grouting is an important aspect of a tiling job since it helps in binding the tiles together, and enhances the look of the floor as well. The problem is that grout between the tiles can get discolored or crack. In such a situation, you would be required to either clean the discolored grout, or remove the cracked one and end up repeating the grouting process.
Cleaning the grout is a much easier process than removing it. People can easily clean grout by using detergent powder, bleach, or hydrogen peroxide. The real problem comes when the grout has to be removed since there is an imminent danger of damaging the tiles during the removal process. People who use a chisel and hammer to remove the grout often crack the tiles while removing the grout. You can always call in a professional to fix the problem. However, if you purchase an effective hand or power tool you can save money by doing it yourself.
